I know many of my followers now are new, very little are familiar with my older stuff that I have written in the past. So yesterday I was doing some surfing around and looking at some of the older stuff I wrote and some of the reviews about it that I came across. Yeah reviews do happen now and then when I write but for most part it’s nothing overly that great, but that’s fine.
So this will take you back to the year 2014, not sure exactly what sparked these two pieces of writing but they came out a few days apart, one was December 8th the other was December 10th.. I have them both listed in the series titled “High School & Therapy”
D – (minus) : yea that’s what I called the first book, this one was about bullying and harassment what many don’t know is I went through a whole lot of that shit in high school so I chose to write about it since I know that many do and with the internet it’s given many people a voice to speak out about it and share there own stories so I chose to do just that.
Therapy : Another one about bullying and harassment, but this time I decided to slap the readers into my shoes and show them how something from high school can still affect a person through out life.
Now on the sites I linked to (Smashwords) only one of them got a review and it wasn’t anything bad, however now and then I like to surf around to other sites that I know my stuff is distributed to and see if I have reviews on other sites… Well I did just that and one of the books i mentioned had some rather nasty reviews calling my books “disgusting” I remember reading them and I wasn’t honestly affected by the reviews I just kind of sat back and laughed at the one who gave me the bad reviews. I know I’m not the only writer out there and I know I have many writers who will no doubt read this and perhaps even like this but in all honesty, how are you suppose to take a review ? If you take it too personally then sooner than later you’ll give up on your craft.
For all the writers out there, don’t let bad reviews stop you from writing. Brush that shit off and keep moving. I’ll admit that sometimes you get touching reviews that make you smile and you’ll get reviews hearing that people are struggling to go through the same shit that you did and many don’t realize that others have gone through that shit.
Well that’s all from me for now, so with that I leave you with a music video:
